Welcome to St. Patrick's De La Salle B.N.S. Castlebar known locally as St. Pat's. Our school is a large, boys' school in Mayo on the west coast of Ireland. We participate in many different sports including gaelic football, hurling, basketball, cross-country running, soccer, table tennis and rugby. We are especially noted for technology education, table tennis and chess and we have a very impressive school band and choir. If you would like a more general information - to get a flavour of our school activities -   follow us on twitter @StPatricksBNS or click here

In September 2022 we will amalgamate with St. Angela's Girls School and become CASTLEBAR PRIMARY SCHOOL.

St Pats have seven green flags!
